On Tuesday 12 March 2019, from 4:30-6:30pm, the Heinrich Boll Stiftung (hbs) will host a gender forum in Nairobi at the Alliance Francaise titled,‘Bridging Gender Equality through Innovation'.
The forum will showcase some of the innovations that have been developed to specifically challenge gender inequalities and realize gender rights by addressing some of the root causes to the various violations. The forum will provide a platform for candid conversation on the place of innovation in realizing gender equality.
Key discussion points:
- How can social innovation ideas and methods be better harnessed to advance gender equality?
- How can we ensure that gender related social innovations achieve transformational change?
- What are the challenges to integrating gender equality and innovation?
- What can help facilitate a sustained collaboration and co-creation across sectors to leverage a diverse set of stakeholders to advance gender equality?
The gender forum will be two parts; a panel conversation on the above discussion points and a presentation by developers on innovations that help realize gender rights. The Program of this gender forum is anchored around the 2019 theme for the international women’s day, 'Think equal,build smart,innovate for change'.
